At AARP, our vision is to help Americans 50 and over age with dignity and purpose. But there can be no dignity or purpose without the ability to get from here to there. Increasing the options for mobility and transportation is at the heart of AARP's 10-year social impact agenda. Meeting the needs of an aging population, keeping them safe as drivers and then mobile and independent when they stop driving—these are all part of our program.
The challenge is an awesome one, but we have no choice. We have to do it if we want to stay true to universal American values like freedom, dignity and choice.
